Tottenham Hotspur Striker Fernando Llorente Says He Misses Juventus 'Like Crazy'

Victor Wanyama of Tottenham Hotspur is challenged by Joss Labadie of Newport County during The Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round Replay match between Tottenham Hotspur and Newport County

Juventus, supposedly the masters of game-management, were left to rue letting the visitors play their game in an atmosphere where many would have crumbled. I can understand. And we are frustrated too, because when you cannot play it is hard to accept.

And ahead of Tottenham's Champions League round-of-16 clash with Juventus, Llorente has opened the door to a potential move back to the Turin club.

The two-legged advantage over Real Madrid and recent wins against Manchester United and Arsenal, coupled with a valiant draw at Liverpool, mean the Tottenham manager sends his side to the Juventus Stadium confident they can beat anybody in their path.

"The Champions League is a unusual tournament, as anything could happen".

However, they will be tested by a Juventus side who have won their last six games straight.

The Italian champions will travel to London for the second leg on March 7, where Allegri claimed Spurs will be under more pressure to go through.

"You need a competitive environment like that", said Dier. This is a good team and although it is unlikely they will win the Premier League this season, they are definitely good enough to make a deep run in the competition.

Allegri said, "The club has grown a lot and the team have grown a lot, in terms of confidence in Europe in particular, getting very important results and achievements".

"Tottenham have a young team and we're building a nice project, but I think it's impossible to compare the history of Juventus with Tottenham".

"Tomorrow we want to do our best with great respect and humility, aware that this is the very first step of a journey which I hope will take us to Kiev in May".

"He is 28 and it was a massive injury that we needed to careful and be cautious, because we can not put at risk his career", he said.

"I'm so happy to be here, my first time after 45 years". Although he stuck with that formation for three games after Toby Alderweireld damaged his hamstring midway through the first half of the 3-1 win over Madrid, he has essentially abandoned the shape since November. The fans and the players have to work with each other as we did in those games and from then forward we've been really strong. Two goals of, respectively, unfussy ruthlessness and unfussy invention, they summed up the players that scored them rather nicely.
